Wow! This is a pretty comprehensive post. The only ones I would add that I didn's see are:


So Right - Dave Matthews

I melt - Rascal Flatts


And if you like "Your Love" by the Outfield, Katy Perry did a remake of it which is pretty cool.

What an awesome thread! We're in a time crunch so this is helping a lot!

One that I love, that I know have been in a lot of wedding videos is "Better Together" by Jack Johnson.

Alrightly, so FI and I are just nailing down the fundamentals and I thought I'd share :)




- "better together" Jack Johnson

- "I'm Yours" Jason Mraz

- "Is this Love" Bob Marley

- "Reggae Love Songs" Assortment found on Itunes.


Processional (Aisle Walk)


- "Canon in D" Keith Kubena (great beachy guitar version)


Signing of the Registry






- "All I want is You" Barry Louis-Poliser


First Dance


- "Now we are Man and Wife" Michelle Featherstone


Father Daughter Dance


- "It's my Life" Bon Jovi (acoustic version-- very important song to my dad and I, he was super excited when I found an acoustic version.)


Cake Cutting


- "Eat It" Wierd Al Yankovic


Garter Toss


- "feelin' Good" Michael Buble


Bouquet Toss


- CAN'T Remember, but my mom had a GREAT suggestion, so I will edit when I hear back from her. :)

Haha, oh I forgot to mention-- my family has this tradition at weddings called "The Gator." It's this hilarious dance that my dad's family made up YEARS ago, where they all get into a circle and do this whole routine with their tie's around their heads-- halfway through my dad does a back flip in the middle of it all *fingers crossed he doesn't hurt himself*



Anyway, this is always done to "White wedding" by BIlly Idol. LMAO! I can't wait!

I completely agree.. I love bright eyes and that is my favorite song!! I wanted to have that as my first dance but my FI feels it will be too sappy and will get people crying :)
